Rope is an item added in 1.2. The Merchant sells rope for 10 copper a unit and it can be found in chests, vases and pots. 10 rope pieces can be crafted into a Rope Coil, which can be thrown at a surface causing up to 10 rope to be placed directly below. Rope acts exactly the same as an Iron Chain but unlike a chain, can be purchased from the Merchant but not crafted.

Player can use vertically attached rope to quickly move up and down, at a speed which equals to speed of freefall, however moving down on rope and hitting the ground will not cause any damage. Player can also move on horizontally attached ropes, although much slower than on vertical one.

Rope works very well to build a hellevator due to the fact that you can move down it at the same speed as falling and move up it fairly fast as well. It is very easy to obtain and can just be placed at the top of a hellevator over and over again to bring the rope all the way down.

If the player places rope while standing on a wood platform the rope will be placed beneath the platform and will lengthen downward as long as placement continues, until it hits a solid obstacle.

The player can also place rope even if the top is seemingly anchored to nothing, and can even extend it skyward. For this reason, using rope is an easy way to access a Floating Island. Simply build a rope column while you climb skyward. When you hit the bottom of the island dig a crawl space up into the clouds. Similarly, you can use a rope column to quickly ascend to the surface when you are exploring the ocean.

[edit] Notes

  • The player seems to climb rope using a winch-like device. Said device is never seen in the inventory.
Anomaly.png Anomaly: Rope extended into lava will not burn and stay placed.
Anomaly.png Anomaly: Boosting with Rocket Boots and then travelling upwards a rope allows climbing upwards at boosting speed, which is faster than regular climbing.
Bug.png Bug : When travelling on rope placed horizontally camera speed is not equal to player speed.
Bug.png Bug : Passive NPCs treat Rope like a Platform and will walk off ledges, falling through it.
Bug.png Bug : In the console version, sometimes grappling up a small rope will make your character shake uncontrollably. However, a simple jump off of the rope will fix this matter.
